The long awaited break to end the pandemic phase of COVID-19 pandemic we all await continues to elude us despite many breakthrough control tools and measures. In times like these when participation of everyone is needed, succinct and clear messaging is a key – and we dedicate this post to applaud one powerful and succinct statement.
While we await the end of the pandemic phase of COVID-19 and to begin the new normal, we recognize the rapid development and deployment of vaccines as one of the biggest success of science, technology, regulatory flexibility. That and the rapid and effective role played by governments in many parts of the world as highlights of what we as a society can do to rise to serious challenges. These accomplishments would have been decade long process in the past or minimally a multi-year process.
As with the other posts of ‘HiBrow Perspectives’ – we highlight salient and some not obvious aspects of some of these huge successes in biomedical and technological innovations, business strategy, regulatory and governance aspects that have impacted the society positively in major ways as well as some stark disappointments.
